St Vincent's Hospital Prepares For Influx Of Patients As Australia Begins To Feel After Effects Of COVID-19 Lockdown

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - JUNE 04: Emergency Department Registrar Cassandra Peoples consults with a patient in the Red Zone (COVID-19) of St Vincent's Hospital on June 04, 2020 in Sydney, Australia. One of Australia's most iconic hospitals, St Vincent's was founded in 1857 and functions as a full service acute public teaching hospital predicted to see up to 60,000 patients come through the Emergency Department in 2020. During the COVID-19 outbreak in Australia, the hospital set up a separate COVID-19 section of the emergency department, utilising a newly built section of the hospital to have a Red Zone (COVID-19) and a Green (general emergency zone) with specific rotating staff to prevent infection spread. In the wake of the worst of the COVID-19 outbreak, staff at St Vincent's hospital say they are now seeing a new wave of patients presenting with mental health, drug and alcohol abuse and domestic violence issues which have been amplified by social and economic changes during the COVID-19 lockdown. To more effectively treat patients presenting to the Emergency Department with mental health as well as drug and alcohol-related conditions, the hospital was granted over 12 million AUD from the New South Wales government and more than 4 million AUD from private donors to start the groundbreaking St Vincent's Hospital Psychiatric Alcohol and Non-Prescription Drug Assessment (PANDA) Unit. This has included reconfiguring the physical space in the Emergency Department to directly address projected growth in emergency presentations. Earlier this year the hospital held a pilot care program called Flexi Clinic specifically for Aboriginal patients, believed to be the first of its type in a hospital emergency department in Australia it was formally introduced in June, 2020.
